AWARENESS EDUCATION EMPOWERMENT
The Mahogany Project, Inc. (TMP, Inc.), a 501(c)3 nonprofit, was founded in 2017 by Verniss McFarland, III, in Houston, TX. TMP, Inc. sparked after the death of Chyna Gibson, a Black Women of trans-experience who was shot in New Orleans on February 25. Chyna was a much-loved performer in the pagent community who was visiting friends and family in New Orleans at the time of her death. As a black trans led nonprofit, we are striving to get new office space to better serve the TGNC community.
The Mahogany Project aims to reduce social isolation, stigma, and acts of injustice in TQLGB+ Communities of Color. The Mahogany Project envisions communities where TQLGB+ People of Color thrive.
We raise awareness and advocate for the expansion of social, health, and education services that are inclusive of all.
We educate local communities on how to navigate resources and bring them back to their community.
We coordinate social and educational activities to improve, impact, and engage with the community.
